“Perfection is not attainable, though if we follow soundness we can locate excellence,” pronounced gridiron guru Vince Lombardi. One group that seems to be winning with that truth is Singer Vehicle Design, a Southern California–based vehicle replacement residence that’s dynamic to take a air-cooled Porsche 911 and reimagine it as impressively as possible. That being a score, Singer’s latest project, a formula of a Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS), is zero rebate than a diversion changer.
The reborn Porsche 911s, debuting currently during a Goodwood Festival of Speed in a United Kingdom, paint a client-inspired partnership between Singer, Williams Advanced Engineering, and a handful of other acclaimed automotive specialists such as Bosch, Brembo, Michelin, and Hewland—most of whom grown components privately for a car. Singer patron Scott Blattner was obliged for a birth of a rarified replacement package as he looked to accelerate and bespoke his 1990 Porsche 964 (the 964 indication series referencing a German marque’s 911s built from 1989 by 1994).
The mutation revolved around a query for both weight rebate and opening increase. Modifications enclosed replacing a strange physique with a redesigned one assembled from CO fiber. Aerodynamic were analyzed and readdressed, such as adding potency to a ducktail spoiler and diffuser for larger downforce during a back.
Williams Advanced Engineering worked with Hans Mezger to come adult with a coupe’s 500 hp, naturally aspirated four-liter flat-six, a substantial volume of that is done from magnesium. (The engine’s cooling ability is softened by side-window atmosphere intakes and decklid vents.) The power-train pattern also comprises a Hewland six-speed primer gearbox with magnesium casings. Williams Advanced Engineering’s cessation (a double-wishbone during a front interconnected with an aluminum back trailing arm) is complemented by Bosch’s electronic fortitude and traction controls (which can be deactivated depending on pushing mode selected) and a anti-lock braking system. Handling is serve honed by Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, BBS Motorsport’s 18-inch fake magnesium wheels, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The interior contributes to a minimization of weight with Recaro carbon-fiber sports seats and a carbon-fiber steering circle from Momo—all combined only for a car—as good as a titanium-and-magnesium rigging shift, drilled CO and titanium feet pedals, and a carbon-fiber instrument panel.
Two examples will be presented during Goodwood, Singer’s restomod versions of Porsche 911s from 1989 and 1990. One is scheduled to competition in a festival’s famed hill-climb competition while a other will be presented alongside another 6 of Singer Vehicle Design’s one-of-a-kind customizations. Although a starting cost for a DLS replacement has nonetheless to be released, it will be good into 7 total when finished.
